Spring Salmon Fishing Information: Springers are
without a doubt the best eating fish there is. Sizes
range from 15-40 lbs. We start fishing for them mid
March. Spring Chinook Salmon fishing on the lower
Columbia River runs from March through May depending
upon the seasons set by the State of Oregon &
Washington. These prized Salmon are sought after
because of their amazing taste. Of course they fight
like crazy with long power runs.
Springer's, as they are called by most in the
Northwest, get their great taste from the large
amount of oils, which are great for you, they store
in order to make the hundreds of miles journey to
their spawning grounds of Oregon, Washington, &
Idaho. They then live in the river until fall when
they spawn. That is the reason for the great taste!
The numbers of fish returning each spring is smaller
than that of the Fall Chinook run therefore making
fishing for Springer's tougher than for Fall Chinook
Salmon. But once you catch & eat your first
Springer, you'll come back every spring hoping for
another taste of a great game fish known world wide.
Billy Davis has years of experience learning to fish
these sought after salmon from his father Bill.
Learning every spot on the river, every tide, every
river condition & how that affects the run of
Springer's each year.
A trip with Billy will be
a great opportunity to experience the resource of
the lower Columbia River & see lots of wild life &
scenery, not to mention chasing & catching the best
eating Salmon in the Northwest.
